Fuzzy / Phonetic Search Does not Work in SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 – Fuzzy and Phonetic people search don’t appear to be working

SharePoint 2013 Search: People Search – “Why are my results so bad?” Understanding Relevancy, the Rank Model, Full-Text Index, Fuzzy Matching, and Social Distance

Strange happen for our environment.
On production site the fuzzy search working but UAT site not working even though every configuration same.
I exported the “people search core result” web part for each environment and found on UAT “EnablePhonetic”/”EnableNicknames” value for “DataProviderJSON” property is false not true. So I changed the web part file and upload the web part file manually and the fuzzy search working fine on UAT as well.
