Hi, @Equris 

Welcome the to Shopify Community. Sorry to hear your search function isn't working as expected. Thanks for sharing your store URL, I can see what you mean! 

Some questions for you: 

  • Have you done some custom coding on your store? 
  • How did you add your products to your store? Are you using a third party app to import products? 
  • Are you using any third party apps that you think might be interfering with the product pages, or search function? 

My recommendation is to try to see if you can replicate this problem on a fresh version of the Dawn theme. To do this, add the latest version of Dawn to your store. From there, on the fresh version, under Online store > Themes, click Actions > Preview. Try searching for your products on this fresh copy, what happens?  

Note: this won't change your current theme as long as you don't click Publish; it will simply add another (new, unedited copy) of Dawn to your store.

I did some testing on my own test store and when I preview my store using Dawn, I'm not having any issues searching for products. This means some custom coding, or an app is likely interfering with the search function. Let us know how this all goes!
