A number of things come to mind.

1) Is this a fresh install or an upgrade?
2) Do you have the visibility set to search on the products in question?
3) Have you tried rebuilding your search index?

Inside of admin:

System -> Cache Management -> Search Index (push rebuild)

I had this problem and sorted it with the search index refresh thx.

You probably also want to check that there are not irrelevant search attributes when you do a search such as “Visibility” or “Taxable Goods”. You turn these off by going to the relevant attribute in Admin>Catalog>Attributes>Manage Attributes
Then select No for: Use In Search Results Layered Navigation
