If it is being blocked you should be able to see the blocking spid and what it is doing.
Could be that someone has left a transaction open.

You can use dbcc inputbuffer to view the instruction.
This SP will do it all for you - show what is happening on the server and any blocking commands.

You should also look at doing something about the extract - 3 hours is probably going to cause problems.
I would at least do it in increments and probably via files rather than directly into a table. Copy to a file locally on the server, copy the file then import.
Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.

Are you using linked servers? If so, are you joining across the linked server or are you just selecting from the linked server?
