2006 BMW X3 Air conditioning problem

I am having an issue with my 2006 BMW X3.

If I turn the air conditioning on full blast hot air comes out of the dashboard vents, cold air from the face vents and hot air from the foot vents. I was wondering if someone could tell me what might be causing hot air to come from the windshield and foot vents while cold air is coming out of the face vents.

A breakdown of what might be wrong and how to fix it would be great. I'm assuming there might be some kind of diverted that isn't working properly.
