why the residuals may stay almost stable ? that will not make a convergence right ?
where might the problem is ?

Please refer to Judging Convergence subchapter in the Fluent' User's Guide. At which level are the residuals stalling and what about imbalances and monitor points?

Okay I see. Imbalances are referring to scrutinize whether the overall continuity and fluxes are conserved and not and are accessible in a general form under Flux report. Are you expecting reversal flow at your outlet?
Increasing number of iterations per time step is not a good idea.
Moreover the backflow quantities for turbulence seem to be causing convergence issues. Please summarize your case in order to provide assistance. I have a feeling that your case is not properly setted up

Just to add, please insert images of your set up as well as of mesh. This will help us to understand your problem more clearly.

I'd also look at your turbulence boundary inputs, and (probably) increase the turbulent viscosity limiter value by a few orders of magnitude once you've confirmed the bc's are sensible.
In terms of the convergence, look at the flow velocity and cell size. Divide cell (edge) size by velocity and then that number by 10. This is a good starting point for a time step. You really need to converge each time step to get a physically sensible result.
As an aside, are you using the University system? You may need to refine the mesh near the free surface and the student licence may struggle with the cell count.

your simulation looks like setup incorrectly or the mesh is in bad shape. 20,000 iteration / time step is an exaggeration. Can you please provide more information about your model?
