I second Tom's comment. If my saddle is too low even by 1/8 of an inch, the
front of my knees will start to ache after a ride. Sometimes I've taken a
bike out after a repair at a local bike shop and failed to notice to
adjustment, but my knees do.
I raise the saddle high enough so that my knee almost (but not quite) locks
at the lowest point of the pedalling circle. The other reason I get front
knee pain sometimes is from trying to grind too much at a very low cadence
in gears that are way too high.
Knee pain, like back pain, is something that I've experienced many times
before and always have to careful about.

adjustments (cleat forward/backward/turned in/turned out, seat
forward/back, saddle up/down, etc.) I should try first? Thanks!
