Try Edit/Clear/Formats from the cells that are misbehaving. Then Edit/Replace,
and replace an equal sign with and equal sign (the latter is the same as
editing each formula).

When I try to edit this =COUNTIF(A1:F16,"*1-2*")+COUNTIF(A1:F16,"*2-1*")
I change the A1 to A2 and hit enter it quits functioning as a formula
and it fills the cell with text and numbers.
I can edit it one time and it will work. If I edit it twice I get the
text and numbers =COUNTIF(A1:F16,"*2-1*")+COUNTIF(A1:F16,"*1-2*") One
thing I did notice is that when I typed the formula in and hit enter
the number that showed up in the cell was aligned right and when I
edited it the first time and hit enter the number aligned left.
