SharePoint search query length error

SharePoint 2013 search results query works properly if the select, filter and other options are in the search query text limit. If the search query limit exceeds search results gives error.

"An administrator configuration transformed your query into an invalid query"


The search length (in KB) is controlled by property MaxKeywordQueryTextLength of SharePoint search service application. The default "MaxKeywordQueryTextLength" value is 4096 (4 KB). Use the PowerShell commands given below.




So increasing the MaxKeywordQueryTextLength value from 4 KB to 8 KB helped in fixing the error.
