SharePoint 2013 Search: ERROR "SharePoint 2013 SearchService did not finish loading"

If this error comes up in the Search Service Application Administrative Status page
after attempting to rename the Search, Crawl Store, Links and Analytics databases, you would need to run the following PowerShell script:

$ssaName = "ServiceApplicationName"
$ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication $ssaName
Resume-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity $ssa
 
If the above fails, try the following:
 
#Suspend the Service


$ServiceApp = "ServiceApplicationName"
$ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication $ServiceApp
Suspend-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity $ssa

#Resume the Service
$ServiceApp = "ServiceApplicationName"
$ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication $ServiceApp
Resume-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity $ssa
