Owl carousel Auto Play not working properly?

I am getting problem with owl carousel 'auto play' functionality. I have uploaded and included all the needed files. Its is working properly on load. Auto Play works perfectly. But when I hover on any of the slide it stops(& I want to stop on hover). And when I release the mouse it didn't play again. plus when I switch between different tabs of the browser and come back to the tab where the carousel is open it permanently stops at that point too. I need to drag it with mouse click or mouse ball then it play again.

Can't figure out whats the problem. I have consulted the official "Owl carousel" website and these threads as well Thread 01, Thread 02, Thread 04. Tried and applied all the solutions provided in these threads. Nothing changed.

Here is my code.

<section id="demos">
<div class="row">
<div class="large-12 columns">
<div class="owl-carousel owl-theme">
<div class="item">
<img src="carousel-03.png" alt="Owl Image">

This is my Js

$(document).ready(function() {
var owl = $('.owl-carousel');
loop: true,
nav: false,
navSpeed: 2000,
slideSpeed : 2000,

1000: {
items: 3,
nav: false,
margin: 20
owl.on('mousewheel', '.owl-stage', function (e) {
if (e.deltaY>0) {
} else {

Here are the files included:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/owl.carousel.min.css">

<script src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/owl.carousel.min.js"></script>

<script src="js/owl.autoplay.js"></script>
<script src="js/owl.autorefresh.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.mousewheel.min.js"></script>

<script src="js/highlight.js"></script>
<script src="js/app.js"></script>

Thanks for the help in advance.

As a default can't be provided as an option so you need to make your own function

declare a variable at the start

var block = false;

Now first we will go for mouse over functon

 if(!block) {
  block = true;
  block = false;

Now using the same above variable we will make mouse leave function

 if(!block) {
  block = true;
  block = false;

Hope its the answer to your question!
