This issue may be caused by attribute properties.

  1. Login to admin panel
  2. open your attribute by catalog > attributes > manage attributes,
  3. Find your attribute by typing your attribute's code or Label.
  4. Open attribute and check the Frontend properties for Quick search and Advanced search inside of your attribute.

    enter image description here

  5. After modified the attribute, you need to clear cache and re-index the data.
