Edit: this is not the only bug. See this answer for details and a module that fixes all the bugs: https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/140826/2380

This is a bug.

Thanks to IWeb for developping the fix available here: https://gist.github.com/balloz/d526e7dbe14c295d706be748e294c8a4

So here's the steps to take to fix the bug:

First, copy app/code/core/Mage/CatalogSearch/Model/Resource/Fulltext/Collection.php to app/code/local/Mage/CatalogSearch/Model/Resource/Fulltext/Collection.php

Then do the following:

Replace line 132:




Then copy app/code/core/Mage/CatalogSearch/Model/Resource/Fulltext.php to app/code/local/Mage/CatalogSearch/Model/Resource/Fulltext.php

And do the following:

After this code line 350:

if ($like) {
    $likeCond = '(' . join(' OR ', $like) . ')';

You need to add a closing bracket by adding:


Then after this code line 383:

$this->_foundData = $adapter->fetchPairs($select, $bind);

You need to remove the closing bracket:


Edit: thanks to Jacques from Monsieur Biz here's a "clean" patch (which creates automatically the fixed file under app/code/local : https://gist.github.com/jacquesbh/c6283faab001d724806c1639a821ff7c

NB: be careful if you ever applied the AND operator this the resource model (as described here: http://markustenghamn.com/improve-search-function-magento), the patch may fail and/or you may have to reapply the AND operator description)
