First, remove the semicolon at the end of your code. This may be interfering with the displaying process.Second, bear in mind that the calculation takes a very long time if the values of your parameters get too large.Third, try to fix the PlotRange so that the plot doesn't jump all over the place as you move the controls.Lastly, I suggest a smoother way to compute the sum.
I tried the following code and it works fine:
Clear[flist];flist[par1_,par2_]:=RandomVariate[FRatioDistribution[2,2 par1],par2];Manipulate[sum=Fold[Plus,0,Table[flist[\[CurlyPhi],np],{nr}]];Histogram[sum,{Min[sum],Max[sum],1},"PDF",AspectRatio->1/3,PlotRange->{{Min[sum],Max[sum]},All},ImageSize->Large],{{\[CurlyPhi],5,"parameter"},1,50,Appearance->"Labeled"},{{np,1000,"number of data points"},1,10000,Appearance->"Labeled"},{{nr,20,"number of replications"},5,200,Appearance->"Labeled"}]
