My husband tried oiling the tracks but it didn't help. Anyone else have this issue and find a solution?
It is likely an issue of settling and/or warping causing a pinching situation. Not at all unexpected in something brand new. You can get dimensional creep in materials especially if the product changes climate locations. Or maybe the installer in the factory did not get the final adjustment done just right.
I would try loosening the screws (just back them off a half a turn or so) that hold the track in place and then see if you can get some adjustment to relieve the binding situation that might be causing the noise. The track will want to settle in to where there is no binding stress, then tighten the screws back up.
