I have been running the same build of CM11 since February with few issues. However for the past couple of weeks my phone has been randomly freezing but no harm was done as a battery pull / reboot would simply fix the issue until the next occurrence.

This morning a freeze occurred during normal use of my phone but after rebooting it would always hang on the CM loading screen. I booted into recovery and flashed an old version of CM10 successfully and everything seemed to be working.

This evening I attempted to flash a new build of CM11 however something went wrong during the data wipe I performed before installation of the new ROM. Since that point I cannot flash any ROM because my phone will always freeze after about 30 seconds of being booted inside recovery mode.

Download mode seems to work perfectly and I have successfully flashed CWM 6.0.3.2 and CWM 6.0.4.7 but both still freeze after about 30 seconds of being booted into them.

Has anyone had this issue or can offer help?

Sounds like nand memory has bad blocks. Try flashing a full stock rom with Odin.

You could well be right about it being a NAND issue, I guess time will tell if I continue getting random freezes.

I flashed a full stock ROM according to your suggestion and ended up with a non-functioning ROM but a functional stock recovery. I then did a factory reset from within the stock recovery which seemed to work. I also formatted my external SD card just in case. I then flashed a custom recovery via Odin and it was fully functional.

Now happily running CM11 again!
