SharePoint 2013 - Start or Stop Search

Starting search using the Services Control Manager in Windows will cause problems with your SharePoint Server. The search service should be started or stopped using SharePoint Central Administration or Power Shell. When I used the Services Control Manager to start the Search Host Controller Service I would get the following error:

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.CustomDictionaryDeploymentJobDefinition (ID 1371766a-f3a1-4d40-a1d9-7464c0b2b2cb)
threw an exception. More information is included below.
and this in the SharePoint Log:

TCP error code 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
After this error the search service would be stopped by SharePoint and show as disabled in the Services Control Manager in Windows.
