A number of authors have proposed mechanisms by which the sun could be a strong source of energetic neutrinos. We search for an excess signal of penetrating neutral particles from the direction of the sun. We employ two data samples. One sample studies energies from 400 MeV to 2 GeV. The other studies vμ interactions above 2 GeV where the atmospheric background is lower. Our results are compared with the general background of atmospheric neutrinos from other directions. No significant excess has been found. These results can be used to set limits on possible dark matter candidates.
