SharePoint Search service stuck in Starting state

Title: SharePoint Search service stuck in Starting state

Description
:

If we are unable to search anything on sharepoint site and getting following error.

“The search request was unable to connect to the search service.”

When we check search service status in Central Admin site it is in “Starting” stage, and when you try to stop and start the Office SharePoint search in Central Admin, but you cannot stop it
and It’s status shows as “stopping”. But this status is not changing at all.

Please try following things to solve this issue.

Run following command through SharePoint bin directory from command prompt.

stsadm -o osearch -action stop

stsadm -o osearch -action start

If this also does not help than run following command

psconfig -cmd services -install

This will configure SharePoint search again.

Note: before running psconfig command make sure you have downtime available.
