Connection timeout encounetered in streamlit app deployed using azure App services

Hi Team,
I have deployed a streamlit app for text to image using stable diffusion models to Azure using azure app services. The streamlit app got deployed successfully. But when executing the app, during the initialization of the diffusion model I encounter a connection timeout.
Could you please help me with a resolution. Please find the code below.

import streamlit as st

seed = 42
state = None

generator = torch.Generator(device).manual_seed(seed)
def update_state(new_state):
  global state
  state = new_state
def pipe_callback(step: int, timestep: int, latents: torch.FloatTensor):
    update_state(f"{step}/{current_steps} steps")#\nTime left, sec: {timestep/100:.0f}")
def init_diffusers():
    model_id = "stable-diffusion-v2"
    scheduler = DPMSolverMultistepScheduler.from_pretrained(model_id, subfolder="scheduler")
    device = torch.device("cuda" if torch.cuda.is_available() else "cpu")
    if device == "cuda":
        pipe = StableDiffusionPipeline.from_pretrained(model_id, scheduler=scheduler, torch_dtype=torch.float16)
        pipe = StableDiffusionPipeline.from_pretrained(model_id, scheduler=scheduler)

#diffusers = init_diffusers()
