I suspect selecting the 1538-1975 option is the problem.  I ran both parents birth search via the 1837-2005 option - no problem

I dropped a complaint about the new format on Family Search and received a reply today.  I was provided with a link giving me their reasons for the change.

Underneath that was a long list of complaints from other users.

Nice to know that others have been so verbal in their opinions. 

For practice purposes I have tried many searches using data I know for a fact was on FS pre changes.  Can I find it now - some of it - but it's a lot more time consuming & definitely more frustrating.
