What is the proper recumbent pedel position?

I purchased a recumbent last year but during my test ride (before I bought it), I injured my knee and had to have surgery (maniscus tear). Anyway, I have recovered and want to my the bike I finally did purchased anyway but I am afraid. I am not getting good advice on how far my pedels should be positioned forward.

If I am on my bike and as I pedel, should my leg be fully extended when the pedel is at its furthest point away from my body or should I have a bend in my leg at the furthest point. I really love my bike but when I get on it now, I feel a pull around my knee and am afraid that I need some adjustments.

Thanks.
